ID: 19018109393

[EAN: 9780226644288], Neubuch, [PU: University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London], CHICAGO, DOMINIC A. PACYGA, ILLINOIS, CITIIES, Social Science|Sociology|Urban, 472 pages. Softcover. New book. CITIES. Chicago has been called by many names. Nelson Algren declared it a "City on the Make." Carl Sandburg dubbed it the "City of Big Shoulders." Upton Sinclair christened it "The Jungle," while New Yorkers, naturally, pronounced it "the Second City." At last there is a book for all of us, whatever we choose to call Chicago. In this magisterial biography, historian Dominic Pacyga traces the storied past of his hometown, from the explorations of Joliet and Marquette in 1673 to the new wave of urban pioneers today. The city's great industrialists, reformers, and politiciansÑand, indeed, the many not-so-great and downright notoriousÑanimate this book, from Al Capone and Jane Addams to Mayor Richard J. Daley and President Barack Obama. But what distinguishes this book from the many others on the subject is its author's uncommon ability to illuminate the lives of Chicago's ordinary people. Raised on the city's South Side and employed for a time in the stockyards, Pacyga gives voice to the city's steelyard workers and kill floor operators, and maps the neighborhoods distinguished not by Louis Sullivan masterworks, but by bungalows and corner taverns. Filled with the city's one-of-a-kind characters and all of its defining moments, Chicago: A Biography is as big and boisterous as its namesakeÑand as ambitious as the men and women who built it. "A wonderful achievement from someone who has devoted much of his career to studying Chicago's history. Pacyga gives us the singular story of Chicago in his own inimitable voice."ÑAnn Durkin Keating, coeditor of The Encyclopedia of Chicago and author of Chicagoland: City and Suburbs in the Railroad Age "When I first moved to Chicago, I was told that 'if you really want to know the city, you have to take a tour with Dominic Pacyga. He knows it block by block.' When Pacyga took me around, I found that he also knew the city's history, decade by decade. I continue to learn from his vast store of knowledge on ChicagoÑand now, thanks to his book, everyone can."ÑGarry Wills, professor emeritus of history at Northwestern University and author of Why I am a Catholic "Well paced and clearly organized, Pacyga's Chicago tells the compelling story of this uniquely American city. Pacyga's narrative provides a particularly enjoyable time-lapse view of the successive waves of change that have seen this settlement in a swamp grow into a modern metropolis."ÑStuart Dybek, author of The Coast of Chicago and I Sailed with Magellan (Key Words: Chicago, Dominic A. Pacyga, Illinois, Citiies).

Chicago has been called by many names. Nelson Algren declared it "A City on the Make." Carl Sandburg dubbed it the "City of Big Shoulders." Upton Sinclair christened it "The Jungle," while New Yorkers, naturally, pronounced it "the Second City." At last there is a book for all of us, whatever we choose to call Chicago. Here, historian Dominic Pacyga gives his hometown the magisterial biography it has long deserved. "Chicago"" "traces the city's storied past, from the explorations of Joliet and Marquette in 1673 to the new wave of urban pioneers today. The city's great industrialists, reformers, and politicians--and, indeed, the many not-so-great and downright notorious--animate this book, from Al Capone and Jane Addams to Mayor Richard J. Daley and President Barack Obama. But what distinguishes this book from the many others on the subject is its author's uncommon ability to illuminate the lives of Chicago's ordinary people. Born and raised in Back of the Yards on Chicago's southwest side, Pacyga spent his college years working at the Union Stock Yards. "Chicago," therefore, gives voice to the city's steelyard workers and kill floor operators, mapping the neighborhoods distinguished not by Louis Sullivan masterworks, but by bungalows and corner taverns. And their stories come alive through an extensive selection of evocative illustrations culled from major institutional archives, local historical societies, and the author's personal collection. Filled with the city's one-of-a-kind characters and all of its defining moments, "Chicago: A Biography" is as big and boisterous as its namesake--and as ambitious as the men and women who built it.
